RRJ does not require membership dues or fees, as we never wanted this to deter anyone from being a member of the RRJ ministry. Therefore, the Sonrise Ride is a way for every member of Road Riders for Jesus to financially help the RRJ ministry continue to reach the lost and minister to the needy.
These funds are used to provide, free of charge, copies of each Rider's Call Magazine to all of our members as well as to many businesses, motorcycle shops, and many who are not members of RRJ. The Rider's Call magazine is a high-quality ministry tool that has ministered to many people as well as provided ministry information to all who read it. These funds also help develop and grow the National Days of Praise Rally, a Safe Rider program, Leadership Training seminars, and more.
All of these donations are tax deductible when made out to the "Road Riders for Jesus" or done through our Donations link. All funds wanting to be used for the current year's incentives must be in by July 15th.
Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
2 Corinthians 9: 6-8 (NIV)
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Matthew 6:19-21 (NIV)
Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents. Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on.”
Mark 12:41-44 (NIV)
Now about the collection for the Lord’s people: Do what I told the Galatian churches to do. On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with your income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made.
1 Corinthians 16:1-2 (NIV)
